Aviation is a global industry and one that is vital to the UK economy and also to non commercial organisations. The regulations in this theme cover the operation of airports and aircraft, environmental and consumer issues, protection for those working within the industry, matters relating to safety and security as well as air navigation and air traffic control.
We welcome your views on which regulations could be improved, redesigned, kept, scrapped, or implemented more efficiently. We want to find out whether we can do things better whilst maintaining important aspects, such as our high standards on safety. We would also like to hear about any other unnecessary burdens in these areas, even if they are not directly linked to the regulations listed. We want to ensure that the aviation industry continues to play an important role in the UK economy and welcome your thoughts on any issues which may be affecting this.

The Civil Aviation Authority is the independent regulator for the Aviation industry. These Regulations make various provisions for the exercise of CAA functions.
These Regulations cover all aspects of operations at UK airports, including, for example, those related to security and the environment.
These Regulations relate to the use of aircraft in the UK, including safety and accident investigation, access to routes, legislation relating to air crew and insurance liabilities.
This site is designed to promote open discussion of ways in which the aims of existing regulation can be fulfilled in the least burdensome way possible. The presence of a particular regulation or law on this website should not be read as implying any intention on the part of the Government to remove that regulation or law from the statute book. The purpose of this exercise is to open government up to the public.
